# Promoting my work on this site

The stack exchange sites are for asking and answering questions. But I'd like to find a non-abusive way of using them to promote my work (character sheets for 3.5 and Pathfinder) that I honestly believe will be of use to people.

I suppose I could ask a fake question in order to answer it, but that seems like a dangerous way to operate. I certainly don't want to start abusing the system - like all of you, I want this site to be a success. And there's no money for advertising - they're free and open source.

Is there a valid way, or should I let it go?

• I've now spent some time looking your character sheets over. WOW! they are concise and well designed. I wish I had had one for my 3.5 sorcerer! – yhw42 Nov 13 '10 at 20:06
• Thank you. I do believe I've taken care of point one: it's a good product. :) – Marcus Downing Nov 14 '10 at 0:06

First off, make sure it's a good product. :)

If it applies directly to the question, include it. If people agree with you, they'll vote it up.

List the site in your material. Then, when your users show up to ask their questions, answer them. That's the best way to make it work.

And promote the site as much as you can.
